Valdez Glacier and Icebergs
Canoe and Trek
The Valdez Glacier and Icebergs tour
An adventure in half a day to remember for all your life.
Our Valdez Glacier and Iceberg tour begins at Valdez Glacier Lake, past the airport at the end of Glacier Campground Road. There we will meet you with a canoe, life jackets, and a small waterproof case that you can keep your phones or camera in, if you desire.
We will canoe out to Valdez Glacier where we walk along the top of the floating portion of the glacier, exploring the glacier and its ice caves. This portion of the glacier is very active and changing all the time. Quantity and quality of ice caves can vary. Generally the walking portion is 2-3 hours of mostly level walking at a relaxed pace. On the ride back we spend time exploring the icebergs. The option to walk on an iceberg exist if a suitable iceberg can be found for safe exit and entry of the canoe.
